Rehabilitation after traumatic brain injury
I choose to work in this profession because of my personal background and my love for music.
I have a special interest in rehabilitation for those suffering traumatic brain injuries, working on individualized goals and bringing families together. My master’s research was conducted at a long-term care facility and focused on the benefits of bringing families together. I found positive benefits by including conversations about family, singing meaningful songs and listening to music into the therapy sessions, because it strengthened their feeling of identity and reminded them about personal achievements.
